NNPP: Ladipo Johnson Emerges As ‘Running Mate’ To Kwankwaso

A lawyer, Ladipo Johnson has emerged as the running mate to the 2023 presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso.

Johnson, a lawyer, is in the position as a placeholder in order to meet the deadline set by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The emergence of Johnson was confirmed on Saturday by a top official of the NNPP that doesn’t want to be named according to a report monitored on The Cable.

“Barrister Ladipo Johnson is standing in as our vice-presidential candidate and his name has been submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission,” the official said.

This comes a few hours after the Director-General of the Peter Obi Presidential Campaign Organization, Doyin Okupe, on Friday acknowledged that Labour Party can not single-handedly defeat the Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress.

The former presidential spokesman said Labour Party needs the support of the likes of the Social Democratic Party, the Labour Congress and other parties in the country.

According to Okupe, LP is putting together the biggest and greatest political coalition in Nigerian history.

He further stated that until the mergers are in place, the Labour Party cannot say that the race is won.
